Editors' Review

This system maintenance program gives you all the tools for ridding your computer of clutter and problematic files.

System Mechanic Professional has a very professional, intuitive user interface. We were able to jump right in and the process required us merely to click the Scan button to find any problems. The program very quickly recognized several registry, memory, and startup issues with our system. We liked that the program gave us the option of viewing and manually selecting the problems we wanted to fix before proceeding. A wizard is offered with almost every repair to walk you through the process. We half expected to receive a trial limitation message preventing us from fixing all of the found problems, but that proved not to be the case. Our registry and memory errors were removed, and our memory was optimized. The program offers its own Internet security options, but it worked well with the antivirus and firewall programs we already had installed on our computer.

A built-in Help feature is available should you need it. Updates are available for immediate download, but other than extending the trial period, we can't think of any changes we'd make to the program. Novice users should beware of any program that alters your registry, but more experienced users will appreciate this comprehensive optimization program.

"The most effective malware on the market"

August 05, 2012  |  By WarlockOrange777

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 10.8

Pros

After it crashes Windows beyond repair, the clean new Windows installation with formatting will solve all your problems. BUT NEVER INSTALL SM 10 anew!!!

Cons

1.Ruined registration of Fine Reader and another software after Registry Cleaner was used.
2. Seems to be working in the background even after its service has been shut. Steals even that way at least 7% CPU and RAM
3. NO EMAIL SUPPORT!!
4. Very hard to create an account to bar IOLO racketeers from automatically renewing subscription.
5. Presumably broke down the Windows Printer service after a Canon driver update, critical Explorer error all the time.
6.Crashed Windows beyond repair after the attempted Restore Registry Back-Up.Their rescue disk was of no use.
7. SM stole at least 50 hours time. No refund whatsoever, because 30 days passed.
8. Led me to a nervous breakdown, even threw the mouse out of the window.

Summary

I'll take IOLO guys photos to the graveyard, if I get hold of any!))(A joke...maybe..)
Use CCleaner,Toolwiz Care,Norton Utilities,ARO, Tune UP(can delete old Restore Points, that frees 8GB on Windows XP SP3)

"Very Bad Product"

August 05, 2012  |  By swaina001

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 10.8

Pros

Way too many issues with their Software.

Cons

Everything, Poor customer service, bad product, corrupts registry, bluetooth, office, etc...

Summary

I use to love it until it destroyed windows installer in laptop running Vista, destroyed bluetooth, can't open Microsoft Office and poor customer service. I didn't have any problems with my desktop running windows 7, but now since the latest update 8/3/12, my desktop is acting up. I used to love the product, but now I don't think ANYONE should buy or download. I am a paid subscriber who is paid up til 2016, that's how much I liked the product...
